Hi I'm 33, mother, and pre nursing student. I have she confusion, that maybe I can get some help with. I started school, 2009, and now are just finishing up my pre-req's. I have chemistry, college algebra, and us history left to take.
My dilemma is this. When I started community college, they had an ADN program, so there was no need to consider other schools, because I'd hope I would get into the one I was already going to.
I moved around a lot, and each CC has a different nursing requirements. For example, my first school used entrance exam testing, whereas, my 2nd school used a point system.
Well I moved a 3 rd time during this process, and the community colleges here in Arkansas, offer Lpn programs.
I applied to a total of 3 nursing programs, one being an LPN program.
I applied late to the university of Arkansas little rock, which was my first choice. I passed the Heisi entrance exam, but there was a problem with my algebra. I thought I had foundations of algebra, and it turns our my algebra was developmental, so my application for ualr, couldn't be reviewed
Anyway, I had applied to the LpN program at a tech school I'm currently in here in Arkansas.
I'm very confused if I should wait until January and take the college algebra, along with my other two missing pre req's, or take the Lpn route if accepted into that program.
My hearts desire has always been to be an RN, but yet I'm wondering if this is a sign for maybe for me to gain experience and do the bridge over from Lpn to rn.
Help so discouraged. Sorry so long
